THE THRONE OF DAVID BY SAMUEL EXCELLENCE


14th April, 2019

IPR DAILY DEVOTION

Topic: THE THRONE OF DAVID

THEME SCRIPTURE:
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)
[6] For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
[7] Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

MESSAGE:
We have established in our previous devotion, that, the third Jewish Temple will eventually be built and situated on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Of great significance inside this Temple, will be the throne of David. That is the throne the nation Israel will erect, while awaiting the Christ.

The Prophet Isaiah had prophesied, that, a Child would be born, and a Son would be given; He is the Christ, who will sit upon the throne of David and whose Kingdom will bring everlasting peace. The nation Israel has continuously faced stern opposition and enmity from neighbouring countries, and has therefore looked forward to the emergence of the Christ as their deliverer, who will bring them everlasting peace. When Christ came the first time, they couldn’t recognize Him; they rejected Him and crucified Him. One of the reasons why the nation Israel rejected Jesus as the Christ was that, whereas they expected the Christ to deliver them from servitude to the Romans, He kept talking about His death and resurrection. To them, if Jesus was going to die, then, He wasn’t the Christ. They didn’t have the revelation that the Gentile world was going to be a part of God’s eternal program through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As a result, the nation Israel is still awaiting the emergence of the Christ up till now. To them, Christ hasn’t yet come; they only know of the Second Advent of Christ, but know nothing about His first coming as the sacrificial Lamb.

Indeed, the throne of David is the reserve of the Christ who came, and who will come again! The angel Gabriel spoke the following words to Mary, the mother of Jesus: “[31] And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. [32] He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.”

In our next devotion, we will discuss how the setting up of the throne of David in the Temple will infuriate the antichrist, and how that will lead to the great tribulation.

Scripture Reading:
Acts 13:19-22; Genesis 1:26-28

Main Text:
Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
